Inspiring Activism

When we see something that isn’t right, unfair or unjust, what can we do about it? Surprisingly, this question is notoriously hard to answer. In this very special Sip Session, Pastor and community activist AJ Johnson will lead us through an experience where we can understand the forces that make activism challenging, and how to overcome, out-pace, or outwit them to take action in a way that makes a difference.
